How STEM Can Help Kids' Future Success
As parents, caregivers and educators we want the best for our kids. Most importantly, we want to set them up for the success in the ever evolving and competitive world around them where technology and innovation play a critical role. How do we do that, while also helping them find their own paths to fullfilling lives and careers?
That's where STEM education and HealthNut Game can help. STEM puts an emphasis on preparing future generations to be successful in their careers. The skills gained from STEM education extend beyond those needed to be successful in STEM fields, preparing children with varied interests who move into any industry to have valuable skill sets that allow them to be successful.
STEM-based education teaches children more than science and mathematics concepts. The focus on hands-on learning with real-world applications helps develop a variety of skill sets, including creativity and 21st-century skills.
21st-century skills include media and technology literacy, productivity, social skills, communication, flexibility and initiative. Other skills attained through STEM education include problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, curiosity, decision making, leadership, entrepreneurship, acceptance of failure and more. Regardless of the future career path considered by these children, these skill sets go a long way to preparing them to be innovative.
Preparing today’s children to become the innovators and inventors of tomorrow begins with STEM education programs. Summer camps, after school programs and games provide opportunities to take traditional learning and pivot it to prioritize the hands-on experience and real-world application necessary for developing an innovative mind.
